We *should* be able to sort these out without to much problems.
Best if we fix -devel first and then port the changes into
releng 1.2.

That's a -devel'ism.

Yiks.  The referenced variables need to moved to inside of
the ldap_thread implementation (The old slurpd/tsleep
globals have been axed.).  ldap_pvt_thread_initialize()
to handle any initialization.

See above.

Yes, remove the dependency.

Applications should have a ldap_pvt_thread_destory() call...
I can add this to the thread implementation and fix up applications
to call it.

This should be okay as long as HAVE_YIELDING_SELECT is UNDEFINED.
We can force the test false if SunOS LWP is detected.

I'm skimming through the diff now.  However, will need your
assistance to get:
	1) SunOS LWP working under the current -devel framework
	2) a port of 1) working under release engineering 1.2
